In order to effectively plan for, track, and manage scenarios we may face with COVID-19 in our community during the school year, Hawken has formed a COVID-19 Response Team. Members of the head of school’s office and the Administrative Council will be managing the all-school policies and procedures, in partnership with our medical advisors and with guidance from the Governor’s office and the Boards of Health overseeing all of our campuses. Each division of Hawken will have a team that manages the specific scenarios that arise. Each division’s team consists of the following members: a member of the head of school’s office, the division director, the school nurse, and a staff member. This team will work with our Head’s office; department chairs, when appropriate; communications personnel; staff who manage attendance, schedules, seating charts; and families. This team will effectively partner with the Board of Health, who ultimately leads the contact tracing process. Multiple members of each divisional team and members of the all-school leadership will be trained by Johns Hopkins in contact tracing so we can proactively plan and effectively navigate each situation and provide the Board of Health and families with answers to the questions they may have.

Members of our COVID Response Team will continue to monitor health indicators at both the state and local level as reported by public health and government agencies. This will include COVID-19 cases in the county, the public health alert system, the number of reported illnesses on campus, and attendance records, in addition to other factors that determine health of our community and campuses.
